Serena Extra Brut
VINTAGE 2017 Vintage
Serena is an elegant traditional method (bottle-fermented) sparkling wine made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grown in the Misawa Vineyard located at Akeno town, Hokuto City, Yamanashi prefecture; and Chardonnay from the Hishiyama producing area which boasts the highest altitude vineyards in the region. The wine is a single vintage extra brut (dry), went through 36 months of bottle maturation, followed by gentle manual riddling on racks and then disgorgement, bottle by bottle.
At Grace, sparkling wines are made with the same bottle fermentation process as used in Champagne. Wines are matured in bottles for 3 to 5 years as a vintage wine.
Serena Extra Brut is the second wine of the prestige cuvée of Grace “Blanc de Blanc” (5 years of bottle maturation).
To ensure a creamy and fine mousse in all of Grace’s sparkling wines, riddling through to dosage are all done by hands, manual work that is cherished.
